one-point lead in florida. and according to a market university poll he is up by eight points. in colorado the president is up by three points? ohio, he is up by two points. and the most recent polls in nevada and new hampshire have him up there as well. check this out! 332 electoral votes to 188 according -- i think i just knocked that out. to 191. that's from today. the only swing state that shows he is down -- actually tied today but down over all is in north carolina. and then there's pennsylvania. the romney camp made a $120,000 ad buy yesterday and three super pacs supporting romney have poured $6 million into pennsylvania just this week. why, you might ask? well, it's all part of their plan to quote, expand the electoral map. the president is up by four points in pennsylvania and they are still pouring all of that money into it. the poll out today was a franklin and marshall poll. and david axelrod placed an interesting range isser on whether the participate would take minnesota, michigan or pennsylvania. >> i will shave off my mustache if we lose a
on the stump in florida today. the candidate is still staying quiet on his commitment to fema, but a campaign spokesperson released this statement, so good that we can hear from the campaign on this and not the candidate, right? "a romney/ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need, period." period? vice president joe biden was campaigning also in the sunshine state today. president obama returns to the campaign trail tomorrow. he plans to barnstorm seven battleground states over the next several days. but today we did not see politics in action. what we saw was government in action. people with authority to make decisions. chris christie is not the first person, i think, that you would think of when you come to the, you know, arena of bipartisan cooperation. he is a mitt romney supporter and a fierce opponent of many democratic issues. for whatever reason, we saw a different chris christie with president obama today. this is what cooperation looks like. when the american people need government to work, these two elected officials became leaders and

on morse street just off of florida avenue. this is a busy warehouse district overnight. these are warehouses that get in a lot of imports and exports, not only goods and products but also a lot of the food here that gets supplied to restaurants around the area. we don't know exactly which warehouse this particular fire was in. we do know it was in the 400 block here. when firefighters got here around 11:00, we believe is when the first notification went out. we do have video of that from last night as well. but definitely there was smoke and heavy flames. at one point, they had to pull all of the teams out of the warehouse they were working in because it was getting too dangerous. they then decided to fight the fire from the outside rather than the inside. for a while, there were portions of florida avenue shut down as well. florida avenue was shut down when we first got here but now i can tell that you florida avenue is back open now this morning. that is good news. we are still waiting to hear from fire investigators on what exactly happened inside here. at this point
and the lane is blocked in both directions. over to florida avenue, still seeing that shut down in northeast between 3rd and 6th streets because of fire activity. in prince george's county, nice and clear for you. if you're making your trip on the beltway, montgomery county as well as virginia not seeing any incidents for you. over to you. >>> the time right now is 5:12. ahead, the airport reopening days after sandy that could help you get a flight out of the region. >>> the important thing that police were handing out, coming up. [ earnest ] out of the blue one day, we were told to build a 30-foot stage. gathered the guys and we built that 30-foot stage, not knowing what it was for. just days later, all three shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse. a group of people walked out on that stage and told us that the plant is now closed and all of you are fired... i looked both ways, i looked at the crowd, and...we all just lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt romney made over 100 million dollars by shutting down our plant and devastated our lives. turns out that when we built that
to nbc's first read, romney was in florida yesterday and virginia today. he'll also hit wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, and colorado before the election. the president, this is an interesting map for him, he will be in wisconsin where he is right now with nevada, colorado, ohio, iowa, virginia, and florida. of course, they're sending their number one surrogates, the vp nominee out where they're not going. is this the map centered in ohio, virginia, and florida, is it still where the action is? >> it is for governor romney for sure. it's always been the case that governor romney needs to win florida, needs to win virginia, and pretty much needs to win ohio. even then he still needs to pick up another state somewhere along the way. you can see in his map that he's spending moths of his time in florida, virginia, and ohio and a little bit of time in one of those other states that he thinks he might be able to get a pickup, whether that's wisconsin, whether that's colorado. those are the states he thinks he has the best chance. he's not spending time in iowa. he'll spend two different trips
is that northbound fourth street is blocked at florida avenue northeast. florida avenue itself is open. so you can access that area but i would suggest that you just avoid it with all that activity there you are bound to hit some delays there. but northbound fourth is blocked at florida avenue and anything leading top morse street there -- up to morse street there. first of all the maps, gw parkway looks great. here's the 14th street bridge, northbound the delays here and in hand landmark northbound 95 the same story from quantico and springfield just the normal slow stuff trying to get to the beltway or beyond on to 395. back over to another live picture this time we're going to goth other side of town -- go to the other side of town. this is pretty much what it looks lick on the west side between 270 tysons corner and springfield. we'll also go to another live picture this time let's take a look at 270. on the southbound side if you're planning to head southbound off and on delays out of frederick to 109. let's go back over to the graphics, some information on penn line 407 which is now running
? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independents that the president is losing. he's actually down nine points among white men. six points among women. and four points among that critical youth vote that propelled him to the white house. all around every demographic, the president's underperforming and especially in that early voting. he has a 1-point -- 14-point deficit to what the president had before. these are all indicators that this election could go in romney's favor. >> gretchen: that's the demographics. let's talk about the issues with regard to the latest polls. who do you trust to handle the economy? juan, on these four fronts, it looks like romney is edging president obama, in some cases big margin, specifically on the economy, 52 to 43 p. are you surprised
. they were friends. they made a wide theory they had the good sense to lead in florida in june instead of massachusetts. then there were wiped out by the spanish. we left the story out of the textbooks. the most famous woman in america was taking captive by indians in 1695. in the middle of the night, she killed her captors. realizing she could get a bounty for indian scalps, she went back and made her way to boston where she was a heroine. she directed -- is that she was elected to her. -- erected to her. >> kenneth davis is our guest sunday, taking your calls and e- mails on and death. he is the best-selling author of the "don't know much" series. watch live at noon eastern on c- span2. >> mitt romney campaign in jacksonville, florida tonight with jeb bush and connie mack. they held two other rallies early in the day. one in tampa and another in coral gables. this is 40 minutes. >> good evening, jacksonville. how are you? ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries
of florida, jeb bush, he'll be our special guest coming up at 8:00 a.m. all that plus as we mentioned the new adp employment report. mark zandi will deliver the report to us first on cnbc. let's get over to andrew with more of today's top stories. >> joe, i think actually we're going to go and talk to mary thompson. as new jersey begins to recover, gas lines are growing. mary thompson is on the new jersey turnpike this morning. mary, good to see you. but there's been a lot of lines and a lot of people talking about this. >> reporter: yeah, very frustrating situation. take a look behind me, you can see the line at the vince lombardi station. and what you can't see is that it stretches down just about a half a mile to the entrance to this rest stop. our cameraman waited in line to get gasoline, he said it took him about 25 minutes. and brian sullivan drove past it yesterday and said the line was at least 200 cars deep. similar scenes like there are being played out all over new jersey as well as long island. residents driving across state lines to find gas, others expressing increasing frustrat
'll look at virge. >> now we'll go to jacksonville florida where mitt romney is to speak shortly. he is with jeb bush. >> you ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries"? this is an important election. this an election about what the future of america is going to be. is our future going to be more debt and more regulation and more taxes? sor our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and. nibble mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] . when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator republican nites senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for
and to make it happen. >> romney was joined by former are florida governor jeb bush who downplayed the president's role in responding to the storm. >> my experience in this emergency response business is that it is the low he cal level and state level that really matters. >> for the romney campaign, a delicate balancing act. travel both president today is new jersey governor chris christie, one of romneys staunchest supporters and there he was traveling with the president. >> i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it has been a great working relationship. >> reporter: as president obama picks up points for his response to the storm, the romney campaign is attempting to expand the battleground, buying ads in michigan, minnesota and pennsylvania. >> we are on offense. >> the president's top advisors calling it foementum saying if romney were really competing in pennsylvania he would be in pennsylvania instead of florida. we asked san jose state political scientist melinda jackson to sort it out. >> i tend to trust the data and the polls are showing that obama se
, and ahead in other key states, including new hampshire, be virginia, florida, wisconsin, colorado, and nevada. and today, a major endorsement coming from new york city's independent mayor michael bloomberg. no question, this is a close race but today in wisconsin the president went after one of the key points in governor romney's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> it sure ain't change. but governor romney is good at changing on every position and doing anything to win. on the trail, he's trying to sound warm and cuddly. he's now taking a soft attack. the new york times quoting him on the trail as saying, democrats love america, too. gee, governor. thanks for that. but that soft attack apparently ends there. because behind the s
this message. >> woodruff: but the romney campaign also began airing a spanish-language ad in florida tying obama to latin american dictators hugo chavez and fidel castro. >> we are america's women. >> woodruff: and american future fund, a super pac supporting romney is running ads targeting women in michigan and pennsylvania, states considered safely democratic. as you can see on the "newshour's" vote 2012 map center" there are seven states currently considered by the associated press to be true toss ups: nevada, colorado, iowa, ohio, virginia, florida and new hampshire. it shows each candidate's quickest potential path to 270 electoral votes. including one scenario giving president obama a path to victory, winning nevada and ohio, to get to 277 electoral votes. for mitt romney the path could also lead through ohio, and blanketing the south, to get to 281 in a different scenario. and there are also several potentials for a tie. this one shows the president losing nevada but winning ohio, to get to 269 for both candidates. and late today, the "newshour" got word that romney will make a last
florida rallies. instead the former massachusetts governor emphasized the need for unity amid the national emergency. >> we come together in times like this, and we want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. now, people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7th. >> so, i mean, i actually -- i don't know how much it would hurt to go further and say that the president's doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it, and you actually maybe even step aside. i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by going out there and awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right, katty. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which was to sort of lay low, let the president be the president of the united states for a couple days, a grace period, i guess, and the president will be back on the campaign trail today. mitt romney back out there yesterday. mitt romney didn't even
, ones we know, florida, new hampshire, iowa, virginia, nevada, colorado, new hampshire, i think ohio belongs in that group. i put it on myself i should have put it in there a few days before now. >> mark halperin, take a look at nbc news poll, iowa, president up but wisconsin and new hampshire, we're talking about a really closely fought race. >> based on the totality of the public and private polling the only us in is on governor romney to depp street get to 270 electoral votes. i think governor romney starts with a challenge which is florida, north carolina, and colorado. if he can win those three, and i think he's got a decent chance in all, although the president hasn't given up on colorado and florida, then he needs to find a couple other -- a couple of options, one is to just win ohio. if he can't win ohio, and virginia also, he needs to win virginia also, okay, if he can't win ohio he needs to find another way. states of the three polls you showed as well as pennsylvania, michigan, he needs to offset a loss in ohio. ohio's the simplest and most competitive the reason they're l
sandy. jon karl is covering it all from the battleground in florida. and we have some new evidence that president obama's response to the superstorm has solidified his position. >> reporter: that's right, george. polls show a solid approval of the president's handling of the storm. and narrow leads in all of the battleground states. but this campaign is about to return with a vengeance. not only did president obama tour the storm damage with new jersey governor chris christie. he also seemed to make a new republican best friend. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> reporter: the president returned the favor. >> i have to say that governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: cooperation on disaster relief works. it also plays well politically. in the latest abc news/"washington post" poll, 78% of likely voters said the president has done a good or excellent job handling
is difficult. polls haven't changed at all. you talk about momentum, but florida, ohio, virginia. ohio, 50% for the president, 45% for mitt romney. that's outside the margin of error. >> other polls show it very close within the margin of error. i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. but i'll tell you what's key, erin, to look at now. with just a few days left, and that is barack obama has not broken 50%. he's down in the 47, 48, has been for what, the better of two months now? he can't break that number, whether it's ohio or florida or virginia, colorado. and on election day, there's a couple of things that will matter. if you're undecided, they'll break for the challengers. so they'll break with the challengers. we have an amazing ground game. we're going to have our votes out there, the intensity is with us. all the fundamentals of this campaign are with mitt romney and that's because he's the best candidate out there with a great, great deal to offer american voters. >> thank you very much. appreciate your time. next, as much of the nation focuses on hurricane sandy,
are going. three places that obama is not going. north carolina, florida, only one stop in virginia. they are worried about ohio. >> bob: having done campaigns before, the last thing you do now is schedule people. the schedule is the only thing to hold and get out the vote. >> dana: i was sorryed he went to boulder, colorado. are you worried about that? >> bob: hold down the vote. >> eric: what are the three states if obama loses any one of them axelrod has to change -- >> dana: minnesota, michigan, pennsylvania. >> eric: wisconsin? >> bob: pennsylvania. >> eric: all right. if romney wins one of those three i'll grow a mustache. >> dana: in your high school yearbook photo. >> kimberly: that could be will ferrell anchor man. >> greg: that is just going to tickle. >> eric: can i clarify that. if he doesn't win one of those. i say he has to win one of those. if he wins one of those, he has to shave and i'll grow one. >> dana: all right. we'll contemplate that. directly ahead we talk about hurricane sandy. left millions miserable. hours of delays for computers, no power. lines stretchin
about florida avenue remains closed between third and sixth street. no problems to report here. we come across the 14th street bridge into town. steve, back to you. >> we want to get to jumei. what's the latest? >> the lapd is reporting they have at least one person in custody involved in the shooting, possibly a second person could be in custody. what we have been able to learn is that four people were shot just after 12:30 this morning west coast time. about 30 minutes later is when university police sent out the alert locking down the campus. we know one of the victims is in critical condition and that victim seems to be the intended target in this shooting. we have also learned three other bystanders were shot and they received non-life threatening injuries. we hear none of these people shot and the gunmen went to the university of southern california. there appears to be some sort of dispute not related to the university. an "l.a. times" reporter is reporting be some type of gang violence. we know the university continues to urge students to st
. so far in florida, 4 #% have voted democrat and 41% republican. -- 43% have voted democrat and 41% republican. doug luzader has the poll numbers. recover this is where the race stands right now. a new fox news poll has it tied up 46% apiece, slightly tighter than just a few weeks ago. >> the obama team is hoping that image as like this will count for something, the president taking charge in the wake of superstorm sandy, touring the damage in new jersey. it didn't hurt that one of his strongest critic, new jersey governor chris christie, lavished him with praise. >> it has been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> reporter: and the president will be back on the trail today in nevada, colorado and wisconsin. mitt romney will be i
the day in florida concentrating on the victims of hurricane sandy. >>> and more than 19 million people already have voted in the up coming election by mail or in person. no votes will be counted until november 6th. voting picked back up in maryland after a two day suspension. there was a big turn out in buoy. hours were extended through tomorrow again because of sandy. >> some other top stories this morning, stanford county sheriffs stepped up the hunt for lawrence stewart. accused of trying to kill his ex girlfriend and police officers tuesday morning. no one was hurt. stewart may be driving a red hyundai accent or white nissan altima with pennsylvania plates. >>> police released a sketch for the suspect wanted in a shooting that killed a woman and injured her firefighter husband. the man is believed to be in his early 20s. the shootings happened friday on a foot path. the firefighter and his wife were walking a dog and started firing the shots. so far investigators have not released a motive. >> getting to know tim cain. former mayor, governor and chair. now, he wants to represent yo
. in the wake of the storm, romney struck a more positive tone, campaigning in florida. but not directly criticizing the president. >> good democrats love america just like good republicans love america. >> reporter: his daughter dressed as datety perry. and one of his boys as the grim reaper. the abc news/"washington post" poll shows the race is tied nationally. 49% for mitt romney. 49% for barack obama. but each side seems convinced their winning. the obama campaign points to the battleground states. all eight of the states where they're campaigning the hardest, the president is tied or winning. but romney points to michigan, pennsylvania and minnesota, three states thought to be solidly democratic, but where obama is now playing defense. the president, back on the campaign trail today. going to wisconsin, colorado and nevada. mitt romney will be campaigning in virginia. george, you can expect both of them to be campaigning virtually nonstop between now and tuesday. >> no question about it. they're going to be focused on the white battleground states and the pink in north carolina, ove
't changed at all. you talk about momentum, but i'm looking here at florida, ohio and virginia, but look at ohio. 50 for the president, 45 for mitt romney, that's outside the margin of error. >> that's one poll. there's other polls showing it very, very close, within the margin of error. in fact i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. i'll tell you what's key, erin, to look at now just a few days left and that is barack obama has not broken 50%. he's down in the 47%, 48%, has been for what the better part of two months now. he can't break that number whether it's ohio or florida or virginia, colorado, and on election day there's a couple things that are going to matter. if you're undecided, those undecides will break for the challengers, that's what's historically known, that's four years they'd already know if they'd be with the president or not. they'll break with the challengers, in addition it's your ground game. we have an amazing ground game, we're going to have our votes out there, the intensity is with us. all the fundamentals of this campaign are with mitt romn
the president is up, 50/45. virginia, 49/47%. florida is the closest, president obama is up one point over romney, 48-47. so there you see it, erin, these states all show obama up. i'm wondering, is that a consistent mood? obviously, the romney people don't buy that >> no, and, look, we are seeing a little bit of a swing back toward president obama. one thing i will say about the storm, about sandy is that president obama is going to be continuing to get positive national media coverage this week, and that could help independents swing back his direction. the thing i'll tell you about being on the ground here in ohio, chris, is that mitt romney is getting pounded by the local press in northern ohio for that chrysler ad that he's been running, and it hasn't come off the air yet. it hasn't come off radio yet either. >> has anybody said -- erin, has anybody said it's an honest ad in the objective media? anybody said it's an honest ad? >> certainly not the media in northern ohio, not the toledo papers, the akron papers, the cleveland papers. they are all pounding mitt romney for that. and here
. that was in florida yesterday. c-span cover that event. some of the surrogates in the second tier members of the ticket are still out there campaigning. howard, you are on the "washington journal." which candidate can best reach across the aisle in your view? caller: good morning. i think the republicans when we are in trouble. i was proud of eisenhower when he sent troops to little rock to help the people there who were down. i see the governor of new jersey return to his normal rights of helping his people with the help of the president. the president was for getting about the people and was just trying to make sure he was a one-time president then the. all they want to do is help themselves. i think the republicans will reach across the line when they are really in trouble. that is my opinion. host: thank you for calling in this morning. a couple of facebook comments -- well, new york, too, was hit very hard. here is the front page of "the daily news." it is a full page. they explained their office got washed out down the battery of lower manhattan. one of the representatives from manh
of these other numbers. colorado obviously important. florida, virginia, certainly ohio. but look at these numbers. this is from the new nbc "the wall street journal" poll in iowa obama 50%, romney 44%. much closer in new hampshire. obama 49%, romney 47% within the sampling error. wisconsin similarly 49%, 46%. these states are pretty important as well. >> every state. all of these battleground states are very important. there are different permutations to get to the all important 270. you look at a tiny state like new hampshire which is so close, four electoral votes, wolf, but it's the last place mitt romney is going to visit before he goes home to boston to vote. the president's going to be there. this could be the difference in the electoral college. if you look at iowa and wisconsin, two other numbers you just threw out there. iowa and wisconsin very important part of the president's firewall in the midwest. for example, should he lose florida, iowa and wisconsin very important. same thing with ohio. both of them -- both those states important to both of these candidates. and
of the usual suspects, ohio, florida, perhaps virginia, he will probably visit them more than once in the next four and a half days. and finally, the ground game, the get-out-the vote effort in the closing days will be increasingly intention. a recent pew research survey suggest that both campaigns are about equal in the overall nationwide. mr. obama's campaign has been able to reach about 11% of the electorate and mr. romney about 10%. virtually identical. and when you look at the battleground states, it's mr. romney who has been able it reach voters about 14% of them and mr. obama just a little bit shy of that, 13. virtually identical. the polls are virtually tied in the battleground states and nationally and the get-out-the-vote race seems to be as well. shep? >> shepard: carl cameron on the campaign trail tonight. we are getting a brand new picture of our economy in several new reports just days before the election. some clarity and details next. and the former president of penn state university now faces new charges in the child rape scandal. from the journalists of fox news, this is a th
it into perspective gist east of gallaudet university fourth and morse street northeast and then florida avenue of course affected right there as well. so keep that in mind for your travel plans east of gallaudet. now here coming in from 66, manassas centreville fairfax, no issues to report. we're looking good right now. but again it's going to be a normal rush hour and that means delays will form quickly through the rush hour. a live look outside near route 28 and you can see the traffic is moving well. let's go back over to our maps this time we'll head over to the southern side of maryland. no problems out of brandy wine or ac key week and a live look at -- accokeek and a live look here. >>> robert griffin iii is being compared to last year's rookie of the year. >> but it turns out rg3 would rather be compared to someone else instead of cam newton. that story coming up at 6:00. >> and we want to take another look at our question of the morning -- >> yep, okay, so our facebook friend joe wrote -- i agree, that movie still freaks me out. >> me too. log on to the wusa9 facebook fan page leave y
